UPDATE: 50mm lifted struts
These should prove useful in achieving my desired ground clearance and maybe an inch more, the only problem I may run into now is CV axle clearance and related linkage clearance.
So to recap height increases assuming all goes well and safe, we have:
50mm kit (extended struts+rear cup lifts)
30mm kit (polyurethane spacers)
30mm springs (dobinsons)
total of about 4.3 inches of lift plus tire sizes equals about 5 inches total. The stock height or ground clearance for the R52 is about 6 inches. I am well aware that the rear cups and spacers may not stack safely so gonna stick my wallet out there and take one for the team.I may be able to correct the cv axle issue by getting some extensions on the bottom of the strut to bring the axle angle up some.
Another note to add here in this math is that this is the total height of the components being added not the actual height the vehicle will be lifted.
